About the property

Luxury ,center city, beautiful sea view

The luxury accommodation is located in the heart of Split,15 feet from the sea, in the City’s UNESO protected area as the world's cultural monument. The entire villa has an ocean view including sea promenade, Yacht marina, islands, etc. The main attractions of Split are two minutes away – Split National Theatre, Marjan National park, Jadran beach, Pjaca (the main square where you can find many pubs and restaurants), museums (Nautical, Archaeological, Ethnographic, etc.), the Poljud football stadium as well as Diocletian's Palace – one of the main preserved Roman monuments in the world, and part of Unesco’s list of World Heritage. On the left side of the villa is the main and traditional promenade Riva, where you can enjoy the first morning coffee, and get a taste of local food in one of many fine restaurants. Riva is connected with another promenade called West Coast, a modern promenade that was designed as South Beach in Miami. The villa is located in the part of the city called Matejuška. It is the traditional part of Split, as it was and still is a place where fishermen meet in the early morning before going fishing. There are many stories about Matejuška; it is the city’s hub during the summer, where both locals and tourists go for a first drink before heading to the beach clubs. Matejuška is where the new and the old worlds meet – there you will find old wooden fishing boats girded with nets, while just a short distance away you’ll see cruise ships and exclusive yachts. If you wake up early in the morning you might even see fishermen returning from their shifts to unload their catches. Locals have a saying ‘Ćuti se povijest’, which means that you can almost feel, taste and smell the history of 1700 year old Split. Matejuška is even older than Split and its Dioklecian Palace. Matejuška has been an inspiration to many poets and songwriters. Even today, youth gather at Matejuška and sing local songs in this natural ambiance. Split and Matejuška will surely leave you speechless. You simply must come and see it for yourself! This unique building has a major role in the history of building city of Split. Dioklecian’s first confidant who was also in charge of the shipyard and the naval fleet lived in this house.  Many years later, the house served a different purpose. Thanks to its authentic exterior and interior it was an inspiration to many musicians. Famous Croatian musician Jole recorded his music video in the front yard of this house; the same year, scenes for a famous Croatian soap opera Lara, were shot in this house. Some of our famous guests include royalty and many international celebrities such as the cast of Game of Thrones etc. Visit Split and discover its beauty and history.

About Renata Mijic

I am Renata, I live in Split. I love my job where I get the chance to meet nice people from various countries. I'm available 24 hours on a mobile phone, Skype, Viber, whatsupp and email. I am pleased to work with people and help them. Greetings from the sunny city of Split.

Renata Mijic purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Renata Mijic chose Split

The villa is under the protection of the city of Split, renovated under the watchful eye of conservators. It has been a family heritage inherited over several generations. It is a beautiful stone house in which you can experience the life on the Mediterranean as it once was, while at the same time enjoying all the perks of the modern life, as the apartments are all fully equipped. The villa is remarkably located at the very promenade, or Riva as the locals call it, and right above the ancient fishermen's port of Matejuska. The guests of the villa have the opportunity to eat in one of the most famous and traditional restaurants in Split, Fife, which is right next door.

What makes this apartment unique

The villa is unique in its location, 7 minutes from the sea, with nothing to obstruct the direct sea view as it is in the area where further construction is forbidden. Few steps away you find yourself on the promenade and all the major sights. We provide you with breakfast or half board in the traditional restaurant Fife which offers much lower prices only for the guests of the Villa Inn, and is located just 5 meters from the villa.

Although the house itself is very old, it has been recently renovated under the watchful eye of the conservators, and is now fully equipped with all the modern appliances.

Most importantly, if you stay in our villa you do not need a car or a taxi, as all the sights, restaurants, shops, bars etc. are within walking distance.

The location right on the seafront and just up from the palace was excellent. Staff were extremely kind and went out of their way for us. Rooms were spacious and clean. We were on honeymoon and given a room upgrade and a bottle of wine. Personal touches like this from Nela really made our stay.

Gorgeous view and helpful staff

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is in the center of Promenade, right next to the sea. Every day everything was cleaned up. Thanks to Mrs. Nela who informed us about everything and her advices about trips we had a chance to see a lot and experience a lot. From Split we continued for Dubrovnik and although we weren't Mrs. Nela's guests for any help we needed we email her and get respond really fast which was really useful for us.

Additionally, the flat was still on the ground floor without sea view, the bathroom though nice-looking, smelled of sewage and fish paste putty and the hot water ran out very quickly making it impossible for one person, let alone two to have a complete shower.

Booking-sites and potential guests please take note: this place is practicing FALSE-ADVERTISING when they claim to offer luxury apartments with sea view and full equipped kitchen and housekeeping THAT IS FALSE, hotel services like 24-hour rooms service and child-care and say that they are located near the beach. This is all false. A bunch of scam-artists overall.THEY DOING AN EXCELLENT JOB OF LYING GUESTS!!!!

Great accommodation! In the center of things. Great hostess Nela, someone who completely understands the needs of different visitors and trying to make the guest stay as pleasant as possible. Fully equipped kitchen, cleanliness, comfort and a beautiful view!

Good location, the rental needs improvement

  • 3 of 5

Our family of five stayed in the Marco polo unit in early September/2015. The apartment is located in a really nice ares with few quality local eateries right next door. The apartment itself was not equipped with basic necessities for five people like towels, sheets, dish soap, or trash can in the bathroom. The kitchen was under stock with plates and utensils which were kind of taken care of as it was brought up. The most unpleasant part of staying in this apartment for us was the noise from down stair's restaurant way too late in to the night ( 2 am) and again in earlier part of the morning ( 4 am) as they moved boxes of wines, coke, and beer around either for clean up and closure or for getting ready to open! The location was perfect and both restaurants had good quality fresh food. When you book from overseas, the owner requires a portion of the cost to be wire transferred to her bank which would cost an additional $35 from USA.
